WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Slick and nostalgic, yet unmistakably modern, Max Raabe & Palast Orchester return to McCarter with a new program! The ever-elegant, debonair Raabe and his 12-piece orchestra embody the halcyon days of 1920s and 30s Weimar Berlin in all its high style and musical glory. It's all there—dance hall songs, couplets, Cuban rumbas, happy foxtrots, and stylish tangos, as Raabe in his perfect tux captures the essence of the cabaret singer, the bel canto hero, the falsetto of ragtime, and the timbre of early pre-war jazz. The Broadway musical Cabaret was just an invention—this show is history!
